Last night we enjoyed Ron Smith’s Big Band at the Windmill Theatre. Our neighbour, Norman, plays Tenor Sax and had a solo in most of the pieces. He organised the concert in Littlehampton in aid of St Wilfrid's Hospice, Chichester. They played big band favourites and jazz, including of course Glenn Miller numbers. Today I headed for a Weekend Wanderers metal detecting rally at Ropley, near Alton, Hants. Finds were scarce, a nice Roman bronze, another Roman and a couple of hammered coins and part of a Roman weighing balance. Weather was perfect, cloud and a little drizzle. The fields were stubble, difficult to work.
